    I am so sorry for your loss. During this difficult time I hope you can find some comfort in this scripture. John 5:28, 29 "Do not be amazed at this. for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life.." This verse gives us hope that we will be reunited with those we have lost in death. What a joyous time that will be. I hope this promise can ease your mind.

    Tracie & Wendy, we are so sorry for your loss. Tracy was a great man and we will miss seeing him across the street working in his yard. He was a wonderful neighbor and the first we met when we moved to the neighborhood. You and your family are in our prayers.
